Sakashima of a Thousand Faces Discussion

DreadKhan on Reaper King

Brago, King Eternal is pretty funny if you've got a few Scarecrows out, and he synergizes really well with your ramp rocks. Maskwood Nexus is a nice card to consider, but you do run a lot of scarecrows already, and need it less. It does let you run weird cards like Haakon, Stromgald Scourge to recur your 'Crows, or Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow for value. Scarecrone should probably be considered.

I like sneaking in cards that use Reaper King's high MV as a pay off, some of these might be worth tossing in, like One with the Machine and Rush of Knowledge . The new Stinging Study is fine, but generally not better than the blue options, other than not needing The King out to use it. If you don't like your opponents, Cabal Conditioning usually wipes out everyone else's hand.

As a pseduo-board wipe, you might consider the recently reprinted Rite of Replication , which can clone Reaper King 5 times to blow up 25 permanents of your choosing, which should be pretty backbreaking (and funny), though all the clones die. I wish Sakashima of a Thousand Faces wasn't $35, but I guess Yarok does a decent impression. With Yarok out, that really would be a selective wipe, since you'd blow up 50 permanents.

Hybrow on Wheel of Snakes

I have a Xyris, the Writhing Storm deck..Snakes on a Planeswalker - Xyris EDH swarm its one of my favorites to play. I like that you have gone heavy into mill. Altar of the Brood ends up being one of my favorite win cons...

Depending on how many wheels you get out it might be worth Spark Double , Sakashima of a Thousand Faces , or Sakashima the Impostor . I love having 2 Xyris in play to double my snake drops.

A quazi-wheel, Wheel and Deal could easily replace Wheel of Fate . Its cheap, but I don't like giving my friends 3 turns to figure out how to kill my commander.

Either way, I love seeing another snakes deck.. I will be stealing a couple of your ideas i think :)

I really like this deck, but have you considered adding some copying effects? Things like Sakashima of a Thousand Faces , Double Major ,or Spark Double . Overall I think I'll use this deck list as a base if/when I make my Koma edh deck.

Hey! I just read through your decklist and thought of a few things you could add/remove. I'll start with the potential cuts:

  1. God-Eternal Kefnet : Most of your instants and sorceries are reactive, like counterspells or removal. I think the only spells worth copying with Kefnet would be extra turn spells, and you only have a handful.

  2. Phantasmal Image : The only creature worth copying is Yuriko herself, which won't work due to the legend rule. Either Sakashima the Impostor or Sakashima of a Thousand Faces might work better here.

  3. Wonder : This card is awesome to draw in your opening hand, because a t2 Yuriko means you'll have to discard to hand size at end of turn. But with no other reliable ways to get it into the graveyard, it's a bad draw otherwise.

  4. Quietus Spike : 3 mana to cast and 3 mana to equip makes this card very clunky. Better to focus on playing more enablers and ninjas.

  5. Dowsing Dagger  Flip: Giving an opponent extra blockers hinders Yuriko's ability to deal combat damage.

  6. Arcane Signet : Tapping out t2 for a ramp spell isn't really where Yuriko wants to be. I would swap it for Sol Ring instead. It also has the same problem, but has a much greater payoff.

This comment is getting long, so I'll put the potential additions in a second comment!

azja on Yuriko (Optimized) Primer

@IzmAYAYA Hey there! That situation has never actually come up for me in a game. I read through some of the rules on the gatherer and this is what I found:

" Spark Double isn’t legendary if it copies a legendary permanent, and this exception is copiable. If something else copies Spark Double later, that copy also won’t be legendary. If you control two or more permanents with the same name but only one is legendary, the “legend rule” doesn’t apply."

I'd assume that Sakashima of a Thousand Faces would interact similarly when copied. So I think the answer to your question is that you could get 5 Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow !
